Applicable fee increases will be subject to KHDA approval and will be applied to the founding fee discounted rates as well as the KHDA approved fees.  In line with KHDA regulations, new schools in Dubai cannot increase their fees until the end of the College’s 3rd year of operation. 

Terms and Conditions

Application Fee

A one-time non-refundable/non-transferable application fee of 1000-AED is payable at the time of application.

Sibling Discounts

We will offer families with two or more children a sibling discount.  This will be 5% for the second child and 10% for the third (and subsequent) child.  Sibling discounts will only apply to the KHDA approved fees.


Brighton College Dubai can only accept your son/daughter’s application with all of the required supporting documentation.   We will not be able to process incomplete applications.

New students to Brighton College Dubai who are unable to be registered with the KHDA due to incomplete documentation could be fined by the KHDA. Brighton College Dubai will not be responsible for any such fines imposed by the KHDA.  Should there be a delay in providing documentation, please advise our Admissions Office.


Submitting an application form via the college’s iSAMS application system does not oblige the college to accept your child. However, once you have received a formal offer and in turn returned and signed the acceptance along with submission of the required deposits/tuition fees, a contract is deemed to exist between the college and the parents/guardians, provided that college’s regulations are observed.

Year Group Placement

The College reserves the right to place your son/daughter in a class deemed to be the most appropriate, within the KHDA guidelines.

Tuition Fee Refund

In accordance with the KHDA framework, both existing and new students deposits will not be refunded if the student decides not to return to College or accept the place offered for the next academic year due to selection of another school in Dubai.  However, a school may choose to refund the deposit under special circumstances.

If you are relocating outside of Dubai, under the KHDA Framework the deposit paid would be refunded.  The College will ask for evidence of the move and this will need to be submitted to the Finance Office when requesting a refund.    

In the case of refund and recovery, the school fees will be calculated as follows as per Ministry of Education Bylaws:

  • If the student attends school for two weeks or less, a month’s school fees will be charged.
  • If the student attends school more than two weeks and less than one month, two months’ school fees will be charged.
  • If the student attends school for two weeks or less, a month’s school fees will be charged.
  • If the student attends for more than a month, three months’ school fees will be charged.
  • In case the term is greater than 3 months then the above cycle will restart at the end of every 3 months. 

The value of the fee per month is calculated by dividing the total tuition fees by 10.

New Students/Registration Fee

Notwithstanding the conditions mentioned in the Parent-School contract, the registration and admission fees are regulated as follows: 

A school may charge up to 30% of the school’s tuition fees as an admission fee to confirm that selected students will opt to take up the offered places. This fee should be deducted from the total tuition fees for the academic year in which the admission is being sought.

Existing Students/Re-Registration Fee

A school may charge up to 10% of the school’s tuition fees as a re-registration deposit to confirm the return of existing students in the new academic year. This deposit will be deducted from the total tuition fees for the academic year in which the admission is being sought. The College will advise of the amount and due date. Re-registration for continuing students will not be accepted unless all outstanding fees due have been paid in full.

Registration/Seat Guarantee

To register your child, you are required to pay the balance of the first term fees at least one month before the beginning of the academic year and hand in post-dated cheques/credit card authorisation form for the subsequent term.

Term One Fees

A student may not start the academic year unless the first term fees have been paid in full. Payments will be only accepted via cash, credit card or cheque payable Brighton College Dubai. 

The College is only able to accept personal cheques for Term 1 tuition fees, allowing that we have 5 working days for this to clear. 

Non-Payment of Fees

Students may not be permitted to appear for the school examination if their fees are not paid in full. Failure to pay tuition fees may also result in:

  • withholding of the Student’s school reports, references, and/or examination results.
  • temporary or permanent expulsion or exclusion from school.

School Reports

According to Ministry of Education regulations, the school reserves the right to withhold any reports until tuition fees have been paid in full.

Final Results

In line with the Ministry of Education regulations, the college reserves the right to withhold the final results and refrain from issuing your son/daughter’s Transfer Certificate until settlement of all college fees have been made.

Transferring schools within Dubai

Should you be transferring from another school within Dubai to Brighton College, the KHDA have implemented an administration fee of 120AED for each student. This fee is collected on behalf of the KHDA by the receiving school.  The payment will be accepted at the time of paying your tuition fee deposit.
